Create art that is not perfect








This work made Top 3 on Pocket full of posies wings challenge- thanks!!
This work made Top3 spot on Elephantastic challenges- thanks!!

This piece of art is the oddest work I ever did- I don't even know how should I call it- so if anyone has a suggestion- you are most welcome to give me it's name.. ARTBOARD? ALTERED CHIPBOARD? You name it.. So here is the concept and it works great if you are a vintage artist like me: take everything you have and know and try to incorporate it in one single 12*12'' piece and use all your scraps- bits and pieces that are mostly in some junk bucket on/ near your table
So I used this recycled 12*12'' chipboard that comes with 25 pack of papers- came actually, now they just pack the cardstock without it..Then I devided it like some kind of printers tray very freely as the distress look helps you to cover your slight mistakes. Evey portion of the board was covered with some scrap paper mostly done with some technique. I have a big piece of white ink embossed music stamping resist technique with pigment brown ink Art stamp heat embossed over the music. I randomly stamped over Prima PP, made paper scrap piecing from Webster paper and added the cut 3d.I misted b/w flocked Dcwv paper with light green mist. Another one was vintage music paper with white crackled paint around. All of the pieces were heavely distressed and inked.
For the title I used some huge foam letters inked, stamped and distressed with clear crackle paint.Then I made some acrylic fragments with maded long time ago piece of resist, inked and stamped background and inked, heat clear powder embossed and clear stickled this gorgeous Tando creative cage chipboard.
The buterfly was made form chipboard Tattered angels embossed piece, inked and stickled, home die cut and plastic butterfly- all together.
All the rest was just a collaging- adding some pearls. blings,3d glue over the bird, making a bow for the cage, adding some metal pieces, buttons, chipboards, a pin, laces, ribbons, thread..
As I said- to incorporate whatever we use and whatever technique we have- ok, not everything, but pretty much most of it.
The only popular technique I didn't ust here is masking mist- as I have all other kinds of paints, glitter glue, 3d glue, regular stamping, resist, heat embossing, paper piecing, layering,using stickers, paper misting without the mask, botder punching, riboon pleating, using home fabric die cut, using non scrappy items- the straw thread all around, playong card, and even hand writing nere the Created by.... stamp.
I think it looks interesting- also the only place this piece can be hold is my crafting room and I don't have any empty walls there- all full with products..
I also tributed here lost of cmpanies: Dcwv, webster, J. bowlin,Prima, Tando,Ranger,Unity stamps, TPS stamps, Creative imaginations stamps, Oriental trading stamps, Tim Holtz, MM, Tattered angels, Heidi Swapp and all big american craft stores too..
And finally- I know how to spell Perfect it's messed for the message- art is never perfect
I think now I am ready for my 2 7 Gipsies trays I got and never used as I was not sure what to do with them.
Thanks for reading this long post and hope you like this " no name" piece
